Let’s talk about caffeine safety. Caffeine is not just that stuff in coffee beans.
It’s a synthesized and also naturally occurring chemical compound found in tea leaves, kola nuts, cocoa beans and more. It’s commonly found in many drinks and foods like coffee, tea, soft drinks, energy drinks and chocolate. There are a lot of benefits from caffeine.
It helps to focus, alertness and increased feeling of energy. That being said, like all things, it is recommended to always moderate or monitor the amount of caffeine consumed throughout the day through foods in Herbalife nutrition products. According to regulatory bodies around the world, healthy adults should limit caffeine intake to about 400 milligrams per day.
Herbalife nutrition caffeinated products are not intended for consumption by children. Parents should consult their child’s pediatrician before providing any caffeinated product to their child. healthcare providers may even restrict or limit the caffeine intake for pregnant woman to 200 milligrams or less than 100 milligrams per sitting equivalent to one cup of coffee.
Some consumers with caffeine sensitivity or certain health conditions may have to limit their intake even further, or avoid caffeine completely. We advise people with caffeine sensitivity to consult a health care provider before consuming caffeine. So keeping track of your caffeine intake is important.
It is always advised to read the product labels carefully to monitor your caffeine intake throughout the day. Not being aware of how much you are consuming can have negative effects such as increased heart rate, jitteriness, or restlessness and are usually experienced shortly after consumption.
These effects can last up to several hours depending on individual tolerance, medical history or the amount of caffeine ingested at one. Always use the products as indicated on the labels.
For example, one serving of herbal tea concentrate is a half a teaspoon, which is the equivalent amount of caffeine as a one cup of coffee. It is important to adhere to the recommended serving sizes by reading the product labels.
Here’s a list of a few caffeinated food items that you might commonly consume. And here are some Herbalife products and their caffeine per serving content.
It is important to note that we have several products that contain caffeine of varying quantities. Let’s take a look at Sally’s day.

While some people can handle more caffeine, it is recommended to stay closer to 400 milligrams per day. Sally should cut out a couple of servings of caffeine to lower her intake to about 400 milligrams. Now that Sally is aware of her daily caffeine intake, she will take the right measures to adjust her intake. There you have it.
